Project Kenai -- a new site for hosting open source projects
By chhandomay on Sep 16, 2008
launched Project Kenai last Friday.
The primary goal of the site is to host open source projects and
encourage collaboration on them.
|Why Project Kenai? Nick Sieger, lead engineer of
the project, comments,
"We need to demonstrate credibility
in building on top of more
traditional LAMP/SAMP web stacks (not just Java EE); and we need to
show viability of Sun technologies and hardware for next-generation web
So how is it running?
From Tim's blog: Project Kenai is using Sun Fire T2000 servers along with a Sun Fire X4500 (Thumper) for storage. OpenSolaris Nevada 70b is the OS. Apache runs in front, using mod_proxy_balancer to connect to multiple redundant GlassFish V2 instances talking to a single MySQL database. The main site is a Rails application running on JRuby, deployed in GlassFish as a war file built with Warbler. Perl, Python, and other various bits of Apache-based bailing wire help integrate Mercurial, Subversion, Sympa (mailing list software) and Bugzilla into the mix as well.
Tim's blog has all the details.
Project Kenai is in invitation-only beta mode -- if you want to try, contact Tim.
